HBO has picked up to series The Franchise pilot, a half-hour comedy that takes a wry look at superhero movie-making, from Oscar-winning director Sam Mendes, Veep and Avenue 5 creator Armando Iannucci and writer Jon Brown.

Work on the pilot was completed before the SAG-AFTRA strike began, and production on the series will not begin until the strikes have concluded.
